Movement for Minds
We have had such an amazing time creating teams and creating stations that will encourage movement and healthy behaviors. We hosted a family fun and fitness night that was a huge success. We created an obstacle course that encourages spacial awareness, balance, and flexibility. Students and parents alike were able to demonstrate skills and athleticism while moving at their own pace. During this event we were able to incorporate healthy eating options such as our bike smoothies, which was a huge success.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

This was such a huge success we already have another one planned for March Madness that will incorporate Basketball Skills Challenges and Healthy Eating Contests. With the assistance and novelty of the bike smoothies, we are able to generate just enough revenue to continue this initiative throughout the whole year...and NEXT!!!
